The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great park to stay at. About a third of the sites have concrete pads to park on and the gravel sites are very flat. The whole park is very flat. The grass is thick and lush. Most sites are pull through, nice and long. The dog park is big enough to play fetch. The water pressure seems to be low. It is just far enough from I-95 so one doesn't hear the highway noise. The park store sells chilled cans of Coke and 3 bags of chips. Sites D12, D13, D14 have big bushy shrubs that are fragrant and attract many, many bumble bees and honeybees. Sites D10 and D4 are close to the dog park and don't seem to have any bees flying around. We will stay here again if we need a stop in this area. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Motorhome.

There is nothing wrong with Roanoke Rapids; it is a typical 15K size town, but no special attractions. The actual rapids in the city are a nice sight to see here.

Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA), Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Warning to campers with toad or trailer RV: This park has quite a few sites that are very short and narrow, only enough for your motorhome or trailer. You must park your toad or pickup in a remote parking lot, making things most inconvenient. If you book here, make sure you get a guarantee that you will be able to park your vehicle next to your RV. The one way roads are like a maze. Be sure to read all the rules carefully. There is a park patrol watching your every move. If you break a rule, you will get a warning call on your cell. This park seems too much like a city, and not a campground. On the positive side, there is a playground and orange fence maze for the kids and a dog park plenty large enough to play fetch. There are many sites that can receive Dish TV. The internet is very good. I see several aerial antennae around the park that I assume are broadcasting the WiFi. Overall, I would not stay here again, mostly because of the remote parking situation. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Motorhome.

Hampton's Summer Wind RV Park, Dawson, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

If you use dish network, it will work. This is a small park on a hilltop with only a few small trees. We stopped by for one night en route to VA. All sites are pull through. If you have good leveling equipment for several inches, select row A or B for a gorgeous view of a cattle pasture on the valley below. If you want a very level site select row C. The view of the WV mountains is great from all sites. The cinder block showers were pretty clean - I would use them. There is no dog park, but the field out front is almost one acre, where I broke the rules (not holding the leash) and played fetch with my 3 dogs. You know your dogs, use good judgement. The water hookups work fine, you just have to push down and twist on the whole spout to get the water to flow. We didn't see much around here. The internet was good enough to slowly upload photos to social media. It is self check-in and you drop the payment through the slot in the door of the office. Owners were available by phone. The interstate was clearly visible about 300 yards away. Motorcycles and semis could clearly be heard outside, but inside our RV, I really didn't notice the noise. No type of fire ring or table. There was one small structure in the A row that looked like a picnic shelter. I would stay here again if I were passing through. I liked the photo opportunities here. We camped at Hampton's Summer Wind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Google maps did not recognize 2204 Lawn Road. Use I-64 exit 150 and follow the camping signs. When you reach the Exxon station at exit 150, you are only 200-300 yards from the entrance.

Three Springs Campground, Corinth, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great place for solitude and quiet. It is a 15 min drive to the Ark Encounter. Even though they do not have sewer hookups, they offer a honeywagon dump service. For Dish network users, there are some sites that have a clear view to the south, work with the owners for the right site. All sites and drives are gravel and most are on a moderate slope. It is nestled in a little valley about a mile from the Interstate, so there is no road noise or train noise at all. The showers have new, large, ceramic tiles on the floors and walls of the showers--much nicer than most park showers. There is no dog park, but there was a mowed, unoccupied tent area that is secluded from the rest of the park, great for walking and playing with dogs. I played fetch with my dog a few times there. The owners are very friendly and talkative, office lady was very polite. If we visit the Ark again, I would stay here again. I gave it a 9 because of no sewer hookup. We camped at Three Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Huntington / Fox Fire KOA, Milton, West Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Site 8 is closest to camp office, is very level, and has great internet. The camp office has hot dogs, cheese, sodas, candy, and some other food items and knick-knacks. Highway noise was only noticeable when outside, and did not detract from the camp. Site 8 was roomier than most KOA sites with plenty of room, so we did not feel crowded. Owner explained how swimming hole was treated with AquaBlue to improve water quality. There was an off leash dog park, and was clean and free of poo-poo. We arrived 5 days before Pumpkin Festival, and camp store was surrounded by festive fall decorations. This KOA is much better than the average KOA and we will stay here again.

Archway RV Park (formerly Quality Times RV Park), Mount Vernon, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very flat, grassy, side by side type of RV park. The sites appear to be far enough apart for pullouts. The sites are very level, we were able to get DishTV in our site, but it could be a problem in some sites. Nothing special, but a good, quiet place to rest. Bring your own grill. The office is extremely nice, log cabin motif. There are three washers and three dryers. There is a dog run where you can let your dog off leash, but it is quite small. Walmart just a few of blocks away. We camped at Archway RV Park (formerly Quality Times RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Lake of the Ozarks KOA (formerly Ozark Trails RV Park and Campground), Linn Creek, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is a clean, friendly RV park that has lots of beautiful trees and a great nightly rate. Unfortunately, it also has lots of wood ticks and chiggers. Do not allow yourself or your dog to touch any vegetation, or you will be picking off wood ticks and suffering from chigger bites.

Peculiar Park Place RV Park, Peculiar, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great RV park especially if you have dogs. The sites are gravel and ours was very level. Great for DishTV reception. The owners are friendly. It is an older RV park, but they have kept it up well. It is very clean. The sites have stone patios and concrete round tables. It is about 1/2 mile from the interstate, just far away enough to make the highway noise very faint. Bring your own grill. There is no enclosed dog park, but if you own dogs, here's the key. In the far corner of the RV park, closer to the interstate, there is a large fallow field the park owns. If you can trust your dogs not to run away, you can let them off leash there. There are benches alongside the field. My dogs had a blast chasing each other. If you don't want to let them off leash in the open, the jeep trail alongside the field makes a great place to walk dogs. It is also a great place to ride bikes. We camped at Peculiar Park Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Chapman Creek RV Park, Chapman, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This park is OK for an overnight stay. It is a typical gravel lot with small patches of sod and a small tree between each site. Underground sprinklers keep the sod in great shape. It is fine for DishTV reception. Cell phone reception was good, and the WiFi was kind of slow. It is very clean and the owners are friendly and helpful. I didn't really like it because even though it is dog friendly, it is not a great place for dogs. The gravel here is sharper and more uncomfortable for dogs to walk on, and there is really no place to walk your dogs except the sharp gravel roads. They do have a small dog park, but it is on a very steep slope and it's too small to play catch. My dogs ended up spending too much time in the RV and not enough time outside. If you don't have dogs, this would be good RV park. If you like to walk your dogs, I would look for another park. We camped at Chapman Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

High Plains Camping, Oakley, Kansas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

I would classify this as a hidden gem. Not many campers seem to stay here. If you stay here, ask to stay in the grassy back lot. When one first drives up to the office, the initial impression is not good, but the grassy back lot is very nice. It is a grass field with 3 gravel roads; 16 campsites, ringed with a line of pine trees. The sites are widely spaced, and it was mostly empty the two days we stayed. There are no overhead trees--Dish-TV works fine. If you are a birdwatcher like my wife, you will enjoy the many species of birds flying and hopping around the campsites. The park rules say dogs need to be on a leash, but there is a large, mowed lot (about an acre) on the backside of the property where one can play catch with the dogs without disturbing anyone. There are two dog parks, but due to the large mowed back lot, they are not that important. Due to few campers being around, there were several times I could let my dogs go chase the numerous, very large rabbits in the area. (Possibly jackrabbits.) (My dogs are good enough that they stop chasing rabbits when they run through the tree line.) If you stay here, it is likely you will see several rabbits. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

Limon KOA, Limon, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a so-so KOA that is a good place to get some sleep as you go somewhere else. To give them some credit, we arrived at 7:00 pm with no reservation and they had a back in site available. My main complaint is they charged me $42 for a site worth $25. The site marker posts were not installed deep enough and several are laying on the ground. Keep this in mind if looking for your site. If you make a reservation for a pull through, you would probably do better. They were in the middle of paving the roads and sites when we stayed so there were piles of asphalt or dirt here and there. It is quite windy here and a burn ban was in effect. The dog park was big enough to play fetch. When approaching the dog park, look left and right to ensure no one is pitching horseshoes. On this note, my Dad is the only person I've ever seen pitching horseshoes while camping. They did have a pool that looked clean. I would probably look for somewhere else if in the area again. We camped at Limon KOA in a Motorhome.

Blue Mesa Outpost (formerly Blue Mesa Escape), Gunnison, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

The main draw of this RV park is the view. All of the RV sites have a magnificent, absolutely gorgeous view of the Blue Mesa Reservoir in the middle of the Curecanti National Recreation Area. (see photo) I would recommend this campground on that alone. There is a marina about a mile away where one can rent pontoon boats. It is a very small campground that is mostly gravel. There is not much room to walk dogs, just around the gravel loop road. If they run through the grass and sagebrush like our dogs did, they can get ticks. There is only one washer and one dryer, and the cell phone reception is terrible. There was a fire-ban in force when we stayed. I would stay here again if in the area. (To make a cell call: Go to the paved road and turn left. Go uphill exactly 0.75 miles, turn right and an immediate left. Go into the yard for empty boat trailers and pull all the way forward. Cell reception there is good.) We camped at Blue Mesa Outpost (formerly Blue Mesa Escape) in a Motorhome.

Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp), US Air Force Academy, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is an Air Force FamCamp, so of course you must have a military ID card to use it. It is very beautiful, full of Ponderosa pines, but still just open enough for DishTV to work. The roads and sites are gravel. The sites are fairly level, with only a little leveling needed. The back-in sites are widely spaced, about 30-50 feet between sites; I didn't inspect the pull-though sites. There is no camp-wide Wi-Fi, but they rent Mi-Fi for $5/day or $25/week, and it provides a very good internet connection which I used to upload hi-resolution photos to Facebook. Didn't try streaming video on it. There are lots of places to walk your dog, but no dog park. If you want to play catch with your dog, you can do what I did, and walk them to the lasertag area. It is secluded and out of the way, but still close to the FamCamp. This is technically against the rules, but the lasertag area is heavily wooded, out of sight, mostly. The laundry is $1.50/load. There was a burn ban while we stayed here, but gas grills were allowed. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. The Academy itself it beautiful, widely spread out with miles of undeveloped forests. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Devils Tower / Black Hills KOA, Devils Tower, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

I like this campground, in general. Biggest cons are the cost. It is extremely expensive, at 63.00/night with Good Sam discount. There are no fire rings or grills. There are very cheap, table top charcoal grills for $20 here, which is what we bought. We had to put our rear wheels on 6" blocks. The majority of the pull through sites are more level. All roads and sites are gravel. Some of the good points: Location: Except for the National Park Campground in the park, this is the closest RV park. This park is literally just yards outside the entrance to Devils Tower. The customer service is great. My sewer receptacle was too high, about 6". I complained about it, and the next morning, people came with a stack of lumber, and made it work. There are two fairly large souvenir shops here with fast food. Still, if you can find another park at a reasonable rate, it might be worth it. We camped at Devils Tower / Black Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

Badlands / White River KOA, Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This is the place to stay if visiting the Badlands National Park. This KOA is much better than average. It is very pretty, full of big cottonwood trees. The "cotton" from the trees is so thick, it almost looks like a mild snowstorm most of the time. I think it is pretty, but it may trigger allergies. It is easily the best campground around for 80 miles. All of the lots and roads are gravel, but the sites look very flat. It is rather on the expensive side. The KOA serves breakfast and supper with a very limited menu. (The food is OK, don't expect gourmet quality.) This is good since the nearest town is population 46, with just a combination liquor store-bodega-post office, one bar and one gas station. Stock up your groceries and supplies before you come, because all the towns around are tiny ranching communities with just a small convenience store, if that. There are 14 cable channels. All cell phones are spotty and can drop calls since this is down in a river valley. I was able to make (Sprint cell) calls sitting in one particular spot at the picnic table. The WiFi here is good. It is unlikely dish TV will work here--heavy tree cover. The sites are a little on the short side. Big rigs with a tow will fit, but it will be tight. There is plenty of room for everyone's pullouts. The park is good for walking dogs and they have a fenced area to go off-leash. (A doggie park.) The staff is friendly and helpful. This is definitely out in the boonies; only a few ranchers a day drive by on the highway. I love it. I would come here again if in the area. We camped at Badlands / White River KOA in a Motorhome.
